General Stuff

Like most holidays, the day afterward is sometimes a bit of a let-down. wishweaver and I went out for lunch only to find one of our favorite restaurants had gone out of business. *bleah* We went to another restaurant that had the same style of food, but it was, shall we say, disappointing. Apparently, now that their main competition isn't around, they're not as concerned with prices or with the quality of the steaks. Let's just say, I don't anticipate going there again anytime soon.

Spent some time today on the ol' PS2, playing Xenosaga again. Hey, it's no Final Fantasy, but I do like the combat system and the cut scenes are pretty good. They're probably the longest cut scenes I've ever run into in a video game. There was one section where they did three cut scenes from three different points of view that set up the next several hours of play. Yeah, they're long, but there are clues both for solving the immediate problems as well as hints of what's to come if you listen closely.

Got together with dzeytoun for dinner and spent a good portion of the evening discussing movies we've seen as well as the ones that are coming out. He'd caught 10,000 B.C. earlier today but didn't recommend it at all. However, he was impressed with The Bank Job, so I may have to put that on the list of things to see soon.

I did manage to get some writing in, even with all this. I added 1303 words to Chronicles, almost reaching the end of Chapter Eighteen. I really was hoping I could wrap this chapter up tonight, but I have a feeling 0645 is going to come awfully early this morning . . . an hour earlier than it did last week, come to think of it.

Did I mention, I hate Daylight Savings Time?"

As, technically, your absent neighbor and all - which restaurants are you referring to, out of curiosity?

Lone Star, over by the Marriott Courtyard.

We wound up going to Longhorn instead, and when you order a big steak and 1/3 of it comes back as fat, I'm not impressed.

I'll be looking around Columbia for a new steak place very soon, otherwise, I'll have to head into Glen Burnie or Laurel for a steak, which will be annoying but doable.

Yeah, I could hit Ruth Crist's but I'm not that fond of Baltimore to want to drive their for dinner on a semi-regular basis.

Usually we hit Outback up in Ellicott City, as Laura is fond of the onion/mushroom accessorization, and the bloomin' onion is quite the tasty/nasty heart attack.

I did like Lone Star better than Longhorn, but it's been awhile since we've been to either. Ruth's Chris does a mean steak, but the times I've been I'm not sure it's quite lived up to the price... or the hype.

I actually prefer Outback . . . just not the 1.5 to 2 hour average wait. As busy as they are, you'd think they'd expand their damn dining area.

*mutter mutter*

Heartily agreed on that! Nowadays, we usually get the Curbside To Go deal, as opposed to eating there.

My brother was once visiting the area, and declared Columbia "suburban hell" based on being quoted a seating time of "125 to 145 minutes" at that Outback... :)
